Spring garden plan – an update

March 23, 2009 | By | Comments (1)

We’ve still got quite a ways to go, but everything in the spring plan has been planted, and all but two crops (tarragon and chervil) have germinated.

Here’s the difference 11 days makes:



I broadcast the tarragon, dill, parsley, and chervil, while I sowed the beets, carrots, scallions, radishes and mesclun mix in rows. I am sort of wishing that I had broadcast everything, as I think that would grow to be a fuller, bushier look. But we’ll see. Learn the difference between broadcasting and rows here.

In other news, I sowed chick peas in a nearby bed. The team tried growing them way back when and had little luck. I’m hoping that soaking the seeds in water for 12 hours before planting them will do the trick. I will let you know!

    My lettuces are coming up: butterhead/ buttercrunch, mesclun Bon Vivant Spicy, and micro greens spicy mix.
